The gift of perfect skin




As you probably know I’m a big fan of Nu Skin and their amazing products and I recently had the opportunity to try out the Nu Skin Galvanic Spa II after already reviewing the Nu Skin Galvanic trio.

The device itself is incredibly easy to use and comes with 4 different heads to use on different conductors to treat the face, scalp or body and they are all used for-Firming the face, correcting fine lines, Shaping the body and stimulating hair growth.
The Galvanic spa ii also comes with gels for the pre treatment and for the treatment itself. During the pre-treat cycle, the device and the pre-treat gel are negatively charged. These negative charges repel each other and the gel binds the impurities in the skin. This will clean the skin from impurities and prepare the skin for the treatment. During the treatment cycle, the device and the treatment gel are positively charged. Hence, the beneficial ingredients can penetrate the skin effectively!


To use the product I started with a clean and dry face, I then applied a pre treatment gel to half of the face (note that the fingers must be wet before holding the device) I then set the device to setting one and followed the motion as described by Nu Skin. After the pre treatment is complete for the whole face I wiped the gel away and began to apply the treatment gel using setting 2, I continued this until the full treatment was complete. 

The Ageloc Gavlanic spa II device gives results like a professional spa facial
The whole treatment was really quick and easy and I’m already seeing the benefits of the product with my skin being firmer and even brighter already.

Tis the season











Coat-PrettyLittleThing
Jumpsuit- PrettyLittleThing
Top- Topshop
Boots- PrettyLittlething
Bag- Primark

I've been wearing this jumpsuit to death since I got it two weeks ago, it looks amazing with nothing underneath if I were going out but obv I haven't been because I'm 22 and old now so I've just been layering things under it so it's perfect for daytime wear. I write this just before I leave for my second last shift before going back to the Emerald Isle which I am very much looking forward to even though I'll miss the girls and Lewis dreadfully, even if I'm only going for a week.

I've also been wearing this amazing lilac fur coat non stop, for work, for drinks, for travelling I haven't taken it off. It makes me look like a huge parma violet I'm told, and I'm okay with that I love a parma violet.

London calling







Uni finally O V E R !!!
Well for Christmas anyway, so we have a month of freedom before it all starts again. This pictures are a good 2 months old at this point but I totally forgot to post them. Lou and I were in London for the Nu Skin event and this was probably the last time I was able to wear anything as summery as this before the freezing weather kicked in and since then I've been wearing massive fur coats and scarves.

It's so nice to finally have some time to chill and not wake up thinking of uni work and for uni work to then stay on your mind all day. Lewis got me a graphics track pad for my birthday so I'll be spending Christmas playing about on that, drinking gin and watching Christmas movies with my good mother.

The end is near






How funny is the light change in these pics? They were all shot within ten minutes but It's getting dark scarily quickly in Edinburgh at the minute.

I haven't posted in over a month which is quite unforgivable but to be fair my uni deadlines have been stressing me out beyond belief but thankfully we have one more hand in and then we are free for Christmas! After handing in two big projects on Monday the girls and I have been pretending that uni is totally over and have been enjoying some stress free days even though we still have more to do. Chloe took the images above of what is possibly my most grown up outfit to date, I'm obsessed with these trousers and feel v v mature in them which is funny cause I'm 22 next week so I'm already mature I just don't act it. 

On Thursday I was lucky enough to be invited to Prettylittlething HQ with Caitlyn one of the other PLT sorority sisters. We had the most amazing day shooting Christmas content with the lovely girls who work with PLT and we got some gorgeous things to take home. I'm off today which is a novelty so I'm going to try and get my final hand in done because on Monday my friends, boyfriend and I are all heading to Belfast to celebrate my birthday which I'm buzzing about!

Charlie Miller hairdressing





My travels are well and truly over for a while. After a mad week of going to Amsterdam and London I'm back in Edinburgh and straight back to reality. Luckily for me I didn't even have time to get holiday blues because I was straight back into the hot seat with Charlie Miller Hairdressing. If you missed my original post about CM you can check it out here and read about how I was transformed into a (healthy) blonde a few months back.

I went back to the South St Andrews street salon today to chat to my personal stylist Hayley about what we should do next with my locks. Hayley has looked after me since my first visit to Charlie Miller and I trust her completely with my hair. I spoke to Hayley about how much I was loving being blonde but also about how much I enjoyed having some of my natural roots coming through. So we decided to pull my roots down so they were gradual and less stark and Hayley also put a slightly ashier tone through my hair which is perfect for Autumn. I was given the Smartbond treatment again as well as the Kerastase Fusio-Dose homelab which is a at home hair care system that the salon will match to your exact hair needs, mine being moisture and strengthening. These kits are available from all five Charlie Miller salons and retail at £44.
I have the genuine FEAR sharing this before and after picture but it has to be done to show how much of an amazing job Hayley did, she's a hair wizard.
You can book an appointment with Charlie Miller via the website, over the phone or pop into one of their 5 salons across Edinburgh. Students can get 30% off all cut and colour appointments Monday-Thursday!

Nu colour blogger event











I’m just home from London, after two days in the big city with Lewis. We were lucky enough to be invited to the Nu Skin “Nu colour” event which was a showcase of all of Nu Skins new makeup products. In particular the event was for the lip plumping balm which is a really exciting new product for Nu Skin. 

The event was in the gorgeous Bulgari hotel in Knightsbridge and we were treated to make up demonstrations and a free bar, which Lewis and I took full advantage of. Attendees treated to a makeup demo by Shreya who is one of Nu Colours professional makeup artists, Shreya transformed my brows in a matter of seconds and gave me some fab tips on how to be use the new Nu Colour range.

 I got a fab goody bag to take home which included some of new collection products including their eyebrow kit, a set of makeup brushes, an eyelash treatment and of course, the lip plumping balm.  The lip plumping balm is something that the team are really excited about and I can confirm that it 100% works. Once I applied it I felt the tell tale tingle of a lip plumping balm and I'm excited to use it over the next few weeks, with the makeup artist recommending I apply it before bed to wake up with a fuller pout. 


I've been using the products everyday since the event and can honestly say I'm hooked, especially on the eyebrow kit and the invisible matte finishing powder. You can check out the whole range of Nu Colour cosmetics here.

PLTsorority







Shoes-Superga

Happy Happy Wednesday,

I've spent my Wednesday hiding from the Edinburgh rain while shooting these images with Lewis and tidying my room (long overdue). 
However I have had some exciting news recently, I've been asked to be part of the PLTsorority crew which means I'll be getting loads of goodies, event invites and a cheeky discount code for anyone that wants it! I'm over the moon to be working with Prettylittlething and I'm so excited for what this year has to bring. 
After growing up being obsessed with 80's american coming of age movies I'm fulfilling my dream of being a sorority gal. 

I'm head to toe Prettylittlething (obvs) and I'm suddenly obsessed with wearing red, I never thought it suited me before but something about going blonde has changed my mind. These jeans are quickly becoming one of my fave pairs and they fit like a glove. 

Off to go do the uni work I've been putting off due to binge watching Game of Thrones, till next time.
